It seeais to u that our baiiieas
en and faraicrj shoald aiake an ef
fort to bring about a fystew of irriga
tion for Webster county. It is cer
tainly the only wean b; which the
great agricultural problvai can be
solved, inasmuch as the rainfall can
not always Ik. depended upon to give
the soil a suficient moisture that will
cope with the blighting effects of the
hot winds which are quite prevailctit
in this sectiou. Now is the time to
act and if our farmers and business
men will co-opcratc in this matter it
will soon be brought to a sat factory
climax, and the fattre of eropr- will
soon be a thing of the past The peo
ple cannot afford to let the imortsat
matter rest idly, but hoild at once
pnt forth the proper efforts to make
it an assured fact. A company should
be formed immediately for that pnr
poec. A meeting shonld be called at
Red Clend to discuss the matter not
later than February. Reniem1cr that
irrigation is the salvation of the coun
try. "It is a general caase for lamenta
tion on the part of many," says the
Kdgar Post, "that few newspapers in
these days, especially local weeklies,
express decided opinions on subjects
cf general discussion, more particular
ly matters touching home politics and
local affairs. The question is often
asked why it is that newspapers are
not more generally outspoken in all
their beliefs. The answer to this
question in a word is: people don't
want that kind of paper. Some will
insist that this is not a faet, and that
a far as they arc concerned they
want to see a paper express decided
opinions. This is andeniably true as
long as the editor agree with them,
but as soon as he rant ceunter to their
cherishel views no matter how trifling
the difference, there is a decided fall
ing off in their admiration for news
papers with opinions, and the chances
are the next move would be the seek
ing of the ofice with the blood eurd-
ling request to : stop my paper," or
fwrhaptrtha more dastardly revenge
of secretly working against the busi
ness interests of the pajicr for the
simple reason that the editor had opin
ions of his own and was not afraid to
express them. This i not true of all
men by any means, but every commun
ity has enough of this element to
make the rule applicable as a general
principle. There it ao question but a
maaly straight forward course is the
one to pursue, but at the same time
the actioas of many who erhaps do
not suspect of themselves, put a pre
mium on hypocracy and by their deal
ings with men tacitly encourage de
ceit and double dealings. This does
not app.3 alone to newspapers but to
every line of business."

Win a the instinct of revenge is
absent, there is a decided distinction
in the haman heart to cause death,
even by legal methods. A very in
teresting case of this jvtermiHed re
volt of the mind against taking life is
that of Judge George Stipp of the
circuit court in an Illinois district.
It became his duty to pass sentence
on the Ottawa murderer. Ford, and. ia
the effort to do it, his mind gave
away. Day and night he fancies
that he is being pursued by men who
try to take h;s life.
This man has been a distinguished
criminal lawyer and has debated on
questions involving the life and death
of many men. As judge he has been
highly esteemed, the only criticisms
being made on him were on account
of his manifest reluctance at all times
to pass the death sentence. This re
luctance was increased by the execu
tion by hanging of a relative ia
another Btatc. This kinsuan was
conclusively proved innoscci.t at a
later day. of the crime for which he
was hanged. After thi the judge
was continually tormented lst he
should condemn to the gallows some
innocent map. Probably this feeling
is much more common among judges
than is generally known. A great
many sheriff's arc tormented with it.
Not long ago a sheriff died at an ex
ecution from heart trouble.
TLc whole scheme of capital execu
tion docs violence to human nature.

On last Friday, Thos. J. Beal, one
of the oldest settlers of Webster coun
ty, departed this life after many years
of usefulness. A few months ago he
left his city home aad went on ta his
farm near Red Cloud for the purpose
of looking after his interests more
carefully, and all went along nicely
until a few days ago when he took a
severe cold, and being of a rugged dis
position thought but little of it. al
though a man of almost three score
add seven, but it began growing worse
day by day, and becoming alarmed he
called the family physician, but too
late, aad finally the disease overpow
ered him aad ''death claimed him as
' his own." Mr. Beal was an exem
plary man and had been a lifelong
cfcri"t'". tavi"S caasecrated himself
te the cause of Christianity -in early
life and lived it day by day, it being a
source of great eemfert to him ia his
declining year. His death was
qaite sadden, it having been leas thaa
ten days from the time he was takee
sick until dissolution had taken place.
He moved to Red Claud ia 72 aad had
lived here daring that period, aad
